United is rolling out a new design for its lounges systemwide

 

United Airlines’ new lounge in Terminal 2 at Chicago O'Hare International Airport is the first to feature a new design prototype that the airline will use for other lounges worldwide.

The 13,300 square foot United Club Lounge, which opened today, features a completely redesigned interior. United has outfitted the club with an expansive bar and lounge area, dynamic lighting, redesigned furniture and additional workstations and power outlets.Another view of the new United Club Lounge at O'Hare Airport

“The new and improved furnishings enable customers to relax or work with greater ease and comfort,” said a release from United.

"We are committed to improving the facilities our customers use every day," said Kate Gebo, Vice President of Corporate Real Estate at United. "In addition to redesigning our lounges, we are installing new jet bridges in Chicago, rebuilding the south concourse in Terminal B in Houston and building new maintenance hangars at Washington Dulles and Newark to improve efficiency and help us better serve our customers."

United Club lounge members have access to complimentary snacks, beverages and Wi-Fi. United is spending more than US$50 million in 2013 to renovate several of the airline's 51 United Club locations.
